Five percent (5%) rate increase for continuing providers July 1, 2014  Rate Increase Details


Appears some Minnesota Counties are requiring providers for AFC Elderly Waiver (203A) licenses to also hold a 245D license.

If you are aware of your County doing the same please let me know.


Not everyone who has a 245A license is required to obtain a 245D-HCBS license as in the following situations

(but not limited solely thereto):

Situation 1) You are a provider of “foster care services” that are not funded by one of the disability waivers (BI, CAC,

or CADI). This applies even if you receive a difficulty of care rate in addition to GRH payments.

Note: A provider is required to obtain the 245D-HCBS program license if the foster care services are funded by one of the

disability waivers.  This requirement applies whether the provider operates a “family” or a “corporate” foster care site.

Situation 2) Foster care services for persons age 65 or older under the Elderly Waiver (EW) or the Alternative Care

(AC) programs.
